Asking price is whatever someone's willing to pay. Guess your search continues

LOL @ peepz who desperate for a grail and when it shows up, ain't willing to pay $200 over their budget

That Grailed CP2 listing is double the highest MSRP (~$900 at Union, was lower elsewhere). At some point the profiteering is too much...

with all due respect, we can't be comparing MSRP from 2012. Acr prices have increase every year. Ls have recently been sold for 1650. If ppl searching for a sz S cp2 are only willing to pay like 1200 max, then they don't really want it. having said that, you may get lucky if you press the refresh button on grailed every two secs lol

That's the type of thinking that got us here.  ACR routinely sold for around or less than retail here, on grailed/eBay, etc. until more recently.  $1800 for the CP2 is whack, and anyone would be a fool to pay it.

That MSRP is actually from 2014 when Acrnm did a second run but carry-on

totally agree, prices are ridiculous. but the point is do you think it'll ever go back to previous levels? and sure you may be able to find retail or below retail prices but that requires luck, time, and obsession. In essence, you're paying a premium for the benefit of the cp2 staying on Grailed long enough until you get on the site. The intended buyer is for those whose time is more valuable than the premium.  

Bobbypee is spot on....I sold my size Large SS-CP2 w/all tags and bag about a month ago for $1850.  Whether you think the price is whack/ridiculous is irrelevant to the price someone else is willing to pay.  About a year ago, I saw a SUFU wanted post that was willing to pay $2500-3000 for a size Small CP2. Anyone who has been in the ACR game for some time knows that the CP2 is a very rare piece, even before the huge price increase due to the nike hype. Supply and demand dictates price.

You're right, my opinion re: pricing is my own and irrelevant to what someone is willing to pay, but that doesn't change the fact that it is objectively ridiculous.  There are people out there willing to pay $20 for a Pet Rock™ and they are well within their right to pay whatever they want for it (or anything else), but much like this CP2 I maintain that to pay that much is foolish.  The more people are willing to pay these asking prices the more we perpetuate such prices and just hurt ourselves, but alas it's probably too late for that.  The secondary market for ACR probably has changed for the worse forever and bobbypee is right: the prices probably won't go back to pre-Nike hype.  

I guess I'm just yearning for the old days when this was truly a Community Sales Thread, with heavy emphasis on Community when ACR heads were some of the nicest and most professional people I've had the privilege of doing deals with, and contributed a great deal to the shared knowledge of the brand.  Now the "Community Sales Thread" has turned into "Reseller Marketplace" with the influx of new people where no one knows anyone and the only thing that talks is money.  I still enjoy and respect the community aspect and would therefore let my pieces go to these guys for "pre-hype" prices (i.e. less than retail) over desperate anon-1234 that's willing to pay double.  Guess I'm the fool in that scenario! 

Def commend you for trying to maintain the community that SUFU has built.

I wouldn't sweat it too much; the bubble will burst before long. 

In the meantime, there's plenty of alternatives. Why not give them a chance for a fraction of the cost?

The most common posts I see in a wtb post 

Buyer - wtb - j28k olive or khaki. 

Seller - $1000 shipped 

buyer - sorry looking for less than retail 

i can understand if it's a used piece but not for a brand new one.

if people dont wanna pay at least 1k for a hot item like the 28, the game ain't for them

There will always be certain items/sizes that garner over retail - but it seems like almost everything is going for above retail prices these days, used or not.

Dear each and every. I have a brand-new in-bag P10A-CH Black M size only tried on briefly because I could immediately tell I need L.

Anyone have a brand new L or very close to new + some $$ we can swap??
